New here and new to diesel

Just wanted to drop a line and say hey. I am new to the forum and new to diesel. I just purchased a 2001 F250 Supercab 4X4 with only 125K on the 7.3. I have been reading here since I picked it up. I have been working on my own vehicles since I was a child. I also have been a tractor trailer mechanic for the past 8 years. Unfortunately, we don't go very in depth when something is wrong so I am trying to educate myself on the 7.3 Powerstroke.

I was also wondering about what are some of the best mods to help gain MPG. I am already thinking about putting in some gauges (maybe boost, pyro, and trans temp).

I will continue to educate myself here and hope I can find some help when I need it.

We have our very own section dedicated to the 7.3! There is a lot of info you can digest in there.

As far as mods for fuel economy, you might not want to hear it but driving habits is the best mod. After that, good maintenance and a free flowing exhaust will help out. Keep reading, it is all in there somewhere!
